Music: The Top 10 Solo Beatles Songs of All Time

By Bill The Beatles are rightly known as the greatest band of all time and the reason they became so famous and are still so highly regarded to this day is because each of the Fab Four were/are incredible musicians and songwriters … well maybe not Ringo, bless him. He had personality, though … and…

Music: Recommendation – The Doors by The Doors

By Bill The Door are one of the most influential rock bands that has ever existed. There influence did not just stop at the musical world, but – particularly the charismatic hurricane that was Jim Morrison – was able to seep into the very heart of 60s and 70s life. From 1967 and 1971 the…

Music: Top 10 Double Albums of All Time

By Bill Double albums have nearly all but disappeared, after becoming popular in the mid-60s and carrying on with strength into the 70s, they are now rarer than a jiving goth. Having two albums worth of material without it sounding like a hell of a lot of filler, is an art form. With this in…

Music: Top 10 ‘Short’ Songs of All Time

By Bill Last week I posted a list about the top 10 long songs of all time and so I thought I’d write a sequel article. As with last week I had to try and define at what point a short song is still a short song. I settled on 2:29 as the limit for…

Music: The Top 10 Long Songs of All Time

By Bill Every Thursday morning at just a little past 8:00am, Chris Evans sounds the ‘Long Song Gong’ on his BBC2 Breakfast Show. This has got me thinking about long songs and what makes a great ‘long song’ and which are the best ones ever written. With this in mind, I have taken the foolish…

Music: Top 10 Rock Guitar Solos

By James  I appreciate this post is a bold one. Whilst compiling this list I was threatened, by a certain someone, to have my eyes plucked out as a punishment for disagreeing with his opinion... (of course, it was Bill. He’s a delightful co-blogger, he really is...) So, before I get started on this list,…
